We are delighted to announce the re-signing of our Goalie George Sykes-Kenworthy until the end of the 23/24 season.
Originally brought in last December after his time at Boston United, Sykes-Kenworthy has been a vital part in keeping us from relegation with multiple clean sheet sprees at home, which also saw him pick up the both the Player of the Year and the Players Player of the Year award during our 21/22 season awards.
After the ink dried, Manager Mark Bower said; “We are delighted that George has committed himself to The Avenue for the next two seasons. He made a huge difference to our team when he signed in December and played a key role in our improvement as the season progressed.”
He continued, “Despite interest from higher league clubs, George feels that staying with us the best option for him at this stage of his career and we look forward to him continuing his progression, working with Danny King and our young goalkeepers.”
George added “I am really happy to be signing a 2 year deal with the club. I am settled here and enjoy playing for Mark and Danny. The keeper coach Danny King is excellent, and I have a great relationship with Liam Hall who brings the laughs along with a real professional attitude. The whole team have a great rapport and with the right additions I believe we can be competitive again next season”
